Ram temple: why don’t you bring down Narendra Modi government, Uddhav Thackeray asks RSS

first_imgShiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on November 2, 2018, said the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) should bring down the Narendra Modi government if it felt the need to launch an agitation for the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya.Earlier in the day, the Sangh said it would not hesitate to launch an agitation on the issue, if needed.Speaking to journalists at the Sena headquarters in Mumbai, Mr. Thackeray said the Modi government ignored the entire agenda of the Sangh. “The issue of Ram temple was sidelined after the Modi government assumed office. When the Sena took up the issue and decided to insist on the construction of a temple, the RSS now feels the need for an agitation to press the demand.” “If you [the RSS] feel the need for an agitation despite having a strong government in place, why don’t you pull down this government,” he said.Bhaiyyaji Joshi’s commentSpeaking to media after the conclusion of a conclave of the Sangh earlier in the day, RSS general secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi said the organisation “will not hesitate to launch an agitation for Ram temple if needed” but “there are restrictions” as the matter is before the Supreme Court.Mr. Thackeray said the BJP came to power at the Centre due to the hard work of the RSS, but the Sangh’s entire agenda, including the construction of a Ram temple, the scrapping of Article 370 of the Constitution that accords special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and enacting a uniform civil code, is now shelved.“After we took up the issue of Ram temple and I announced my plan to visit Ayodhya on November 25, others too have started talking about the issue,” Mr. Thackeray claimed.last_img read more
